Gift in exchange for income for life

A Charitable Gift Annuity is an option that could pay you or a loved one income for life, earn you a tax deduction, and even help you avoid certain taxes — all while helping us continue our mission to lead souls to Heaven.


  • You will receive fixed payments that will not fluctuate with the ups and downs of financial markets.
  • You are entitled to a charitable tax deduction in the year you make your gift.
  • A portion of your gift annuity payments will be tax-free.
  • Your payments can be deposited directly to your checking or savings account.
  • You will pay less capital gains tax, if you fund your annuity with appreciated securities.


How it works:

  1. You donate cash, stocks, or mutual funds to the Marian Fathers to establish a gift annuity.
    - The minimum gift amount is $5,000 and the minimum age is 60.
  2. Gift annuity rates are determined by the age(s) of the annuitant(s) — the person(s) who will receive the payments. See information sheet to view gift annuity rates.
  3. The annuitant(s) will receive fixed payments for life, then the Marian Fathers will use the remaining principal from your gift.
